Becoming a Child

Think of a child; an infant. Envision him or her for the next two years; exploring, expanding, adventuring, laughing, and crying their way through life.

When a child is climbing a tree and falls, do they never climb a tree again? If a child and one of their neighborhood friends go adventuring and the friend gets hurt because of their actions … does the child never go adventuring again? Does the child never make a friend again, for fear that they might hurt another friend?

No. What is the reason for this? A child knows how to let go … pure and simple.

As adults we allow ourselves to be trained, pruned, structured, disciplined, packaged, and shaped. We allow ourselves to be tamed.

If we are in a relationship and get our hearts broken? We vow that we will never again open ourselves in such a way. If we do something wrong, and someone gets hurt, we torture ourselves with guilt … as if such self-inflicted torture could actually take away the pain of the other. If we pursue our dreams and fail?  We resolve that we must resign ourselves to doing what everybody else views as “the responsible thing to do”.  In short … we do the opposite of letting go.  We hold on to EVERYTHING and then drag it around with us, allowing it affect and mold the rest of our lives.  LET GO!

To be childlike is actually synonymous with being Christlike … that being: unencumbered by negativity or darkness. Darkness cannot live in light … so, if you are caught up with negativity of any sort? You are blinding yourself … condemning your soul to a tiny cell of darkness.

Bitterness, fear, guilt, sadness, rage, shame … the list goes on … they are all simply darkness that needs to be exposed to the Light. Accept them for what they are and then let go; each and every time … just as one would accept darkness … with the knowledge that turning on the light makes darkness vanish.

Light is merely darkness transformed. We are merely the spiritually blind waiting to be enlightened. But that will only happen if we let go of everything that is the dark.

Like a fetus in the darkened womb … we are the Children of Light simply waiting to be born.

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.
